The day has finally arrived and the HSE’s updated legislation has gone live as of the 1st of October.
The Health and Safety (First Aid) Regulations 1981 have been amended to remove the requirement for HSE to approve first aid training and qualifications.
The change is part of HSE’s work to reduce the burden on businesses and put common sense back in to health and safety, while maintaining standards. The new approach applies to businesses of all sizes and from all sectors.
Information, including the regulations and guidance for employers is available on the HSE website at http://www.hse.gov.uk/firstaid/
Emergency 1st Aid for Adults at Work: Due to great demand we have now added some additional dates in October and November, please see Open Courses on our website for further details www.gettrained.co.uk
